  • Fantabulous news app

    By Menomenamenotyou
    Great articles, good notification system
  • Excellent unbiased news

    By Grand time!
    I appreciate the thorough, unbiased news entries. My "go-to" news source.
  • Slow app

    By John cooperfhgfurfh
    So slow. Always crashes. Articles aren't right, images don't load properly.
  • Crossword puzzle

    By skeptical crossword puzzle fan
    The recent changes to the digital crossword puzzle are disastrous. The puzzle keeps moving, occasionally disappearing and often losing the keyboard. The Post should go back to where it was a year ago
  • This app changed my mind!

    By Owllight
    I was considering dropping WP simply because the app i was using crashed and hung and sometimes just didn't load. Then this app was made available to digital subscribers and I am very happy. It is intuitive, smooth, and has not crashed or hung yet. I love the content of WaPo but having an app to read it that works well has made me stay with them. Get this one if you subscribe. Don't get the other one.
  • Constantly makes me sign in again

    By Gre8hound
    That says it all.
  • Great content

    By StonyCurtis
    But I need to drop stars for the app. I find that sometimes sections don't update for days. Also sometimes content is completely missing in a story. If that's fixed it would be great.
  • Great app

    By Felbinger
    Best quality newspaper app, with a speed and edginess that leaves others behind.
  • Great place for news

    By Tccroni
    The Washington Post has been a beacon of truth and has the ability to go beyond the headlines or tweets to bring truth to power and the American public.
  • Inconsistent Background Loading

    By Jlandon62
    This app is excellent for those articles that it loads, but it frequently doesn't load anything new! I've been using it since it was released and expected that it would load all new articles in the background either when I opened it or, if it was already open, as those articles became available. Sadly, neither of these are true. The only reliable method to load a page is to select it, which requires a live connection to the internet. Absent that, reading articles is a crapshoot. Why can't the Post create an app that grabs EVERYTHING in the AM?
